Add-ons I've created

Unhide Passwords

If you aren't concerned about someone looking over your shoulder and stealing your passwords, why hassle with those obfuscated password fields, where you never know whether you typed your 30 character code correctly or not...

Privacy Badger

Breaks sites' style sheets Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Too many sites become useless with this addon, as it blocks style sheets from loading.
Should be more intelligent in what it blocks, and the sliders give no help whatsoever, as to which domain is responsible for the missing style sheets (you'd have to look into the page's source code to find that out).

Update: After realizing that this addon breaks about half the sites I'm visiting (yes, I reported them, but that doesn't fix the issue), I've finally given up on it, and uninstalled it.
Protection is nice, but not if it goes overboard and breaks legit sites. (I may as well not use my browser at all — that'd be the safest thing...)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Google search link fix

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I LOVE this addon - Google forcing me through another hop, just so they can track my clicks was ridiculous!

They also seem to be doing the same thing with links in Google Drive documents though. It would get great if this addon could get rid of those as well.But many thanks anyway!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.1.1-signed).
